The History of Our Water Treatment Company

Advanced Water Systems was started by Gene Smelik, Sr. in January of 1986.  In the mid-70s, Gene purchased a Kinetico system for his farmhouse in the Cleveland, Ohio area that is still working and in use today — roughly 40 years later!  At the time, Gene recognized the need for a quality water system for Carteret County citizens. A system that provides efficiencies, reliability, and consistency that was not available until Kinetico..!

Outstanding service has always been the #1-priority with Advanced Water Systems, so in 1990, Gene’s youngest son, Jesse, started working with his Dad installing Kinetico equipment and fixing other brands of water softeners while growing a steady customer base. In 1995, Gene’s second youngest son, Patrick, started in the sales management position and has worked with the premium builders of Eastern North Carolina, increasing the number of Kinetico customers with the help of his vast knowledge of water treatment. With Kinetico products in high demand, Gene’s oldest son, Gene Jr., was brought in to open the Raleigh/Durham market, and the growth has continued now into Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia.

Advanced Water Systems has been dedicated to providing the highest grade products and services to all clientele in their service area for over 31 years, so give them a call today and join their over 50,000 satisfied customers enjoying Kinetico water today..!

Water Filtration and Purification Coverage throughout NC, VA, SC, and GA

From there, the Advanced Water Systems family has grown to a number of 60 total employees, including Gene’s oldest son, Gene Jr.  Advanced Water Systems’ focus has been and will continue providing the absolute best product and the best possible service.
